The Application

"Do it, Robb Kendall, and you're a F-BOMBING DEAD MAN!" Liam shouted, sweat running down his face and spittle flying from his lips. I was pressing the barrel of a .45 automatic into the underside of his chin while his goons pointed their own guns at me when he said it. I smiled at them over his shou...

Chapter 7: Deal With The Devil

I wasn't sure what exactly I was planning to do once I found Liam Gallagher and his gang. All I was thinking about, really, was getting Eileen away from them. Alright, and maybe a little bit of hard love for Vern's face from my fist. The metal one. That's the thing about Ranger training. It taught m...

Chapter 6: The Hunter Rising

Polly had been kind enough to hire a cab to have dropped me off wherever I would like. She'd provided me with fresh clothing, of a cut which I was completely unfamiliar but was certain was well beyond my budget.. I would have felt rather out of place walking from the cab and into the neighborhood su...

Chapter 5: Can't Keep A Bad Man Down

I awoke, unsure of exactly how I had made it home. My head was still groggy from the beating. Rays of sunlight filtered into the room through the yellow drapes. I raised my cybernaughtic arm up over my eyes, the cool metal shielding me from the piercing sunlight. But almost as soon as I raised it, I...

Chapter 4: Finding Eileen

After my time in O'Toole's Pawn, and settling in my newfound companions beneath my bed in the apartment, I set out for Saint Helens to find my sister. I held a crumpled letter in my hand, peering at the address Eileen had written. It was worn and faded with the passing of years; I could barely read ...

Chapter 3: The Russian

At first glance, I knew he was a hard man. I've seen hard men, in the Royal Irish Rangers, in the Gurkha Brigade, and in the other British armed forces divisions I've worked with in my ten years of service. I've opposed hard men in the service of other countries; the Portuguese almost broke me. I've...

Chapter 2: Any Dark Alley Will Do

The first thing I thought of once I had arrived back in the Great Metropolis was securing a roof over my head. Then the changes I began to notice in the place I had spent eighteen years of my life sank in. Once I had stepped past the Wall around the Great Docklands, I was struck by how much it had c...

Soldiers of Misfortune

Chapter 1: Coming Home The Crown thrives by dint of its massive military. How eager they are to sink their bloody hooks in you, to fight for Queen and Country in some far off land to secure “national interests”. And they hook you good, they do. I was but a wee lad by the time I knew I wanted to joi...

Re: Rewards in Etherscope

ok, what I was thinking of was a chart in d20 Future, but it's a Purchase DC chart, not a Wealth chart. Table 7-16, pg. 145 converts Purchase DC to dollar amounts.

I'd have to research further on the Wealth bonus to $ conversion, could have sworn I saw one somewhere...

Re: Rewards in Etherscope

I don't have the book with me at the moment, but I seem to recall a sidebar or somesuch in d20 Modern that gave a conversion between dollar amounts and specific Wealth bonus levels. If you can find it, it would be +1 equals so many dollars/pounds and up a scale... I really have to get it out of stor...

Epilogue

A figure slides through the New London alleyway. It moves swiftly across the spotless flagstones, a long shadow behind it. Next to the long shadow, a smaller one moves. “So where are we going now?” a small, soft voice whispers. “Well, I’m done with politics for a while. Time to relax a bit. I though...

Bobby Z = 2 + 15 (6) + 2 + 2 + 25 (7) + 26 (8) = 27 = 9 = Completion; everything’s come full circle with the moment he walked into the MilTech system’s doorway. What you don’t know can, in fact, hurt you. Badly. But sometimes, the smallest things can save you. For instance, Jack hadn’t known at the ...

And so it’s all come down to this moment in time. The six of us stand here, nerves on ragged edge and jumpy, looking up the glittering length of the New London Central Administration Tower. Droplets of rain fall down from the midnight sky, spattering upon our scope leathers. The vast majority of the...

Re: Is this possible? And if so, how would you do it?

I 'm running an Eberron game right now, so yeah, I can see where a Warforged adaptation as a living construct could fit very well.

Lemme know how that works out!

Re: Is this possible? And if so, how would you do it?

It sounds like something that would be cool, but with the cybernaughtics RAW, it's not really possible to make a character at 1st level who would have a completely cybernaughtic body. But I say don't let that stop you! But my first question is: are you playing this game with anyone else but your wif...

The Bubble Club, New London. The group assembled before me consists of several of the most skilled scope riders in the world. Or so Jack tells me. Roxelle sits beside me, hand in mine under the table. Jack’s across from me; he’s been listening to my plan, all the while scribbling on a notepad furiou...

Re: Scope Jacks

In otherwords any class of character or npc can have a scope jack implant? That would be correct; as long as they take the feat and use the CPP on a scope jack. What do you guys imagine would be the most popular type of scope jack implant? I imagine it as possible to be implanted anywhere there's a...

It’s June 9, 1984. Or so the ragged remnants of the calendar on the wall of this run-down coffin building in Makersfield tells me.

Re: Actions in the Scope

I look at it as a search engine of sorts. The timeframes for finding data based upon the size of the...
